24/7 Wall Street: The Most Expensive Tickets in Sports

12 of 22

NBA: 5. Boston Celtics

Avg. Ticket Price: $99.43
W-L Past 10 Years: 56.6% (5th highest)
Championships Past 10 Years: 1
Avg. Home Attendance: 18,624

The Celtics — with 17 NBA titles — are the winningest team in basketball history; at one point, Boston claimed eight championships in a row. Seeing them play, though, is not cheap. Buying a resale ticket to watch the Celtics costs, on average, just over $99. An average of 18,624 people attended games played in 2010-2011, yet the Boston Garden only holds 18,624. The fact that the Celtics can average a sell-out over an entire season is one of reason they are valued at $482 million, the fifth-highest figure among NBA franchises. Boston’s overall revenue did fall by $5 million between 2011 and 2012, but that drop is due mostly to 2012’s lockout-shortened 66 game season, which had eight fewer home games than the year before.
